Newborn Photos – How to Not Stress if Your Baby Won’t Sleep
We’ve all seen those adorable newborn photos of new little babies looking so peaceful and relaxed. As new parents, we want those gorgeous newborn photos of our little bundles but then your photography day comes around and BAM! – your baby does not want to cooperate.
You’re upset and anxious because of your you want those gorgeous newborn photos If this is happening during your session, I want you to stop, breathe and remember one thing: all newborns cry. This is a natural, real emotion that all newborns have for most of their first few months of life. The kicker is that when you stress out about your baby not cooperating then it actually makes things even worse because babies can sense your stress. This is where it is great if your partner or I can and will take the baby. If you are breastfeeding then your baby will smell ‘food’ on you and also become unsettled.
So the best thing is firstly to take a deep breath, get a cup of tea (only if you’re not breastfeeding) or some water and sit back on the insanely comfortable couch in the newborn photography studio and let us settle your baby. We have been doing this for a long time and know how to capture your newborn. All that being said, if your baby is still awake and not sleeping for those sleepy baby photos, we can still capture some gorgeous newborn photos.
